> Upstream update:
> Major changes between "less" versions 436 and 443
> * Change search behavior such that when a search is given an explicit
> pattern, the entire displayed screen is included in the search and
> not just the portion after the target line.
> * Add -A option to change search behavior to the old way: only
> the portion of the screen after the target line is searched.
> * Add %F formatting to prompt strings, replaced by the last component
> of the input file.
> * Control-G while editing a command exits the command.
> * Less now exits with status 2 if control-C is pressed and -K is in effect.
> * Fix "ungetc overflow" when passing long commands via the -p option.
> * Fix bug in using line filtering via the & command
> in combination with -i and -I.
> * Fix bug in handling negative arguments to the -j option.
> * Fix bug in handling %t in prompt strings.
> * Improve handling of long option names.
> * Improve percentage calculation for very large files.
